It’s been an absolute age since I’ve posted on here and I’m not going to bore you with the reasons why, there are reasons though.
Anyway, so I’ve been thinking about simple, tasty food recently that can be cooked without a lot of bother. As you probably know by now I love South East Asian influences and so that’s where I got today’s inspiration from.
- 2 chicken breasts
- 2 cloves of garlic
- 4 small shallots
- 1 red chilli
- 50ml soy sauce
- 50ml hot water
Method of Preparation:
- Slash your chicken breasts three times, about half way through on one side
- Heat some oil in the pan over a medium heat and sear the chicken then remove from the pan
- Chop the garlic and shallots, slice the chilli, put them to the pan and cook for about a minute
- Put the chicken back in the pan, add the soy sauce and water and cover
- Cook for about 10 minutes until the chicken is cooked through, turn it a couple of times to avoid any burning
- Serve and pour the sauce over the top. If it gets too thick during the cooking just add a drop more water
That’s it, 20 minutes from start to finish and it’s really tasty. A great taste of chilli and soy with a hint of garlic. You can jazz it up a bit with some ginger or honey or even cooking in sesame oil. I served mine on a bed of egg noodles which only take 4 minutes.
